Koch Bros. US Senate candidate Wehby refuses to debate Senator Merkley (D-OR)

Not too surprising. I wouldn't want to debate Merkley either if I was a Koch-Bros-funded nitwit, a stalker, known primarily for her plagiarism and sleazy attack ads.


Wehby refuses invitation to debate Merkley
by John Tierney * Statesman Journal * Sept. 26, 2014

PORTLAND, Ore. Dr. Monica Wehby has refused an invitation from KGW and The Oregonian to appear in a televised debate against Sen. Jeff Merkley.

Wehby, the Republican candidate, is trying to knock Merkley, a Democrat, out of his U.S. Senate seat in November's election.

KGW and The Oregonian invited Wehby to appear in the debate shortly after she won her Republican primary race in May. After months of back and forth KGW ultimately set a deadline of noon Friday for Wehby to accept or decline the offer.

The noon deadline passed with a Wehby spokesman only saying "we're keeping all options on the table."

1. Their cowardly candidate in Michigan won't debate either.

It's like those are their orders. I imagine it's because kochroaches scatter when the light hits them.

2. Interesting to see how "cookie-cutter" the Koch strategists are being

 

from state to state. Lockstep they are.

4. The candidates that refuse to debate needs more media attention!

 

What are they hiding? What are they afraid will be exposed?

8. i think it's more a matter of practicality

they only stand to lose support by debating. they're running a stealth campaign designed to keep turnout low, and debates tend to increase voter interest.

5. those Koch ads of hers are really pissing me off.

Cowardly attacks on Merkeley. She's a coward.

I don't believe she has any chance to win.

9. i agree, she's not likely to win outside of a complete GOP sweep

and i hope the Koch's burn all kinds of money trying to promote her. it will probably accomplish nothing except to further expose their agendas.

11. According to the most recent poll, she 20 points behind Merkley. May she stay there.

12. Isn't that bizarre?

 

Normally, if someone refuses to debate, they're ahead in the polls. When you're behind, you do what you must do to catch up, and that includes attending debates. Is this candidate a lousy public speaker? What gives?

13. Wehby has too much baggage, even w/Koch Bro$ .. to get elected

 

She's got nothing much positive to say, it's all about how "bad"
Merkley is, which is 99.9% BS.
